Published on May 15, 2015
In today's fast-moving world, businesses are always looking for new ways to transform the way they work to stay at the forefront of their industries. More and more, organizations are turning to Dropbox for Business to increase workplace collaboration and to make it a cinch for their employees to work how they want to — increasingly on the go and across multiple devices.
For these customers, our enterprise file sync and share service is a critical part of getting work done: active users interact with the product over 100 times a day. This week, three new organizations, each leaders in their industries, have joined the list of over 100,000 customers now using Dropbox for Business.
California State University, Fullerton, a large campus in Southern California, is the latest name in higher ed to roll it out. Tech giant Yahoo! and chemical producer FMC Corporation, both companies with large global reach, have also selected Dropbox for Business to help make it easier and faster for people to work together. By signing up, these three organizations are now part of a massive collaboration network made up of over 1.2 billion shared links and folders globally.
For many college students, Dropbox ranks right up there with laptops and energy drinks when it comes to the things they rely on to get schoolwork done. Nearly one in four university students in the U.S. already have personal Dropbox accounts. Around the world, faculty and students at more than 3,000 educational institutions use Dropbox — and the numbers keep rising.
On the sun-baked Cal State Fullerton campus near Los Angeles, students, faculty, and staff are using Dropbox for Business in several key ways, like accessing and sharing their work. It's helping members of the university community easily collaborate with others, whether they’re sitting in Pollak Library or doing field work in Portugal thousands of miles away. The move to Dropbox for Business is also helping cut down on paper waste by reducing the need to print documents out. This follows MIT's rollout of Dropbox for Business to all of its students and faculty in the past school year.
Other educational institutions powered by Dropbox for Business include KIPP Houston and Atlanta International School. Yahoo! is the latest tech company to tap Dropbox for Business to help make collaboration easier. The company’s brand marketing team is using the solution to help staff keep in sync for internal brand communications as well as external brand assets. Other tech companies using Dropbox for Business include travel website Kayak, location-based mobile app Foursquare, and software developer Asana.
A growing number of companies in manufacturing and construction are leaning on Dropbox for Business to help make it easier to access and share design and other documents in the field. It's also enabling them to respond to customer requests more quickly. Dropbox is excited to work with Philadelphia-based FMC, a company of more than 5,500 employees with operations worldwide.
Dropbox for Business will help the company’s globe-trotting sales team share content and collaborate on work — across devices and file formats — anywhere in the world.
